New Hampshire is investigating possible voter fraud involving 458 people who cast ballots in November's election.

NH1 reported the numbers after New Hampshire's secretary of state provided them to the news outlet, noting that if in fact 458 people did vote illegally, it could have had an effect on the outcome of close local races. Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte lost her re-election bid to Democrat Gov. Maggie Hassan by around 1,000 votes.

The state — along with Virginia and California — is one called out by President Donald Trump for alleged voter fraud that he says cost him the popular vote, which he lost by 3 million votes to Hillary Clinton. Trump still won the Electoral College in the Nov. 8 vote and was inaugurated as president Jan. 20.

"Trump said that he and Ayotte would have won in New Hampshire if not for voters bused in from out of state," NH1 reported.

Nearly 6,000 people who voted in New Hampshire for the first time used out-of-state identification, data showed earlier, but it's legal in the state and may account for new residents and college students. People who can't prove they live in the state are still allowed to vote, but are sent a letter from the Secretary of State to sign an affidavit confirming their residency.

"According to documents provided to NH1 News this week by the Secretary of State’s office, 6,033 letters were sent to people who voted in New Hampshire last November without proof of domicile. As highlighted earlier, 458 of those letters came back undeliverable. Many of the names of those people will be sent to the state Department of Justice for investigation and possible prosecution," NH1 reported.

The state had 1,193 undeliverable letters after the 2012 election, so the number is actually down following last year's vote, NH1 noted.
